Yes, every card / driver is different ;) And documentation on the parameters is sparse usually..

If your driver supports some "undefined" positive sens value you can experiment with different settings and
see if you find some relation to link quality perhaps, or, you just find a value that works for you.
Testing should be easy as you can just change the value while connected and walking the house. Have this
line running in some terminal then you see as soon as your card roams to the other AP:

while true; do iwconfig wlan0 |grep Access ; sleep 1; done

Good luck
